This professor knows what he is teaching and gives engaging lectures. He is very nice and actually cares about your grades and tries to give you the best appropriate grade that you deserve. He also provides the class with past midterms and finals to study before exam. His midterm were very similar to the practice midterms when I took the class. Also, if you need help or have a hard time understanding the material I would recommend for you to go to his office hours because he is very approachable. If you want a good grade and you will put effort then definitely go for him.

class wasn't too difficult bc i've taken calc before; but i can genuinely say that if i hadn't, this class would've been hell. prof is terrible at explaining & doesn't leave room for any student-teacher interactions. he seems like a super nice guy but just honestly not the best teacher. he posts his lecture notes on ccle (so honestly there's not that much of a point in going) & his TAs are super helpful.

I took AP Calculus in high school, and I feel like that's the only reason I didn't get a B- or C+. Professor Gong is extremely nice, but as it was her first ever class at UCLA in Fall 2018, she really didn't explain the concepts that clear. The very first lecture I could tell that the class was going to be a struggle for anyone who hasn't had previous calculus knowledge, because she went straight into the core of Math 31A like she expected everyone to know the basics (ex: limits, derivatives, etc.), which a lot of people in that class hadn't learned. She also brushed over the theories and formulas but didn't went over the concepts thoroughly at all. Even though I've already learned a lot of the stuff, I often found myself getting confused at her explanations of some of the concepts. All in all, great person, super nice, wasn't really a good explainer, would not take her class again because I need to really fully understand the concepts to be able to do the problems, but if you're good with just learning the theory and have no trouble understand math, go ahead and take her.

Admittedly I found this class easy because I'd taken AP Calculus in high school, but I think even people without prior knowledge will do well with Professor Greene. She genuinely cares about her students, so she's always willing to answer questions and help you when you have trouble. Her lectures move at an appropriate pace and are pretty clear, and when something is unclear and you need clarification she's always willing to explain. Each homework assignment was only about 10 problems, and while there were several assignments due across the week, it was easily manageable; it wasn't busywork with too many useless problems. Exams were the same difficulty or slightly harder (but not too much harder) than homework. The TA Harris Khan was also very helpful, doing many clear examples and having a lot of office hours to help students. Overall, I'd highly recommend taking math with Paige Greene.

He is a professor suitable to those who have talent on math.

He pushes the progress of the class very fast and the scope of that very broad; students can learn some stuff of 31B or 32A from his class. It's an advantage to me.

The order of his lectures are different that of others, so taking notes is pretty necessary, though he distributes notes of some difficult topics.

The homework is inspiring, though some feel it's hard. During previewing the following courses, I have got sense of familiar because Dr. Greene has more or less included some necessary content in the continuing study. Most importantly, he gives answer to his homework though his manualscript is a bit hard to recognize.

The exams are easy, if you are serious to the course. After all, it's all about the most basic concepts of mathematical analysis.

Seeing back now, he concentrated on buiiding the connection of differentiation and integration by the fundamental theorem of calculus, which is also the core purpose of the course. He did that well.

Just failed another midterm, yet again, by yours truly *cough* Rachel Greenfeld *cough* a math professor who can’t teach math. Wait what? A math professor who can’t teach math? Yea that’s right... Professor Rachel you’re ruining my life, please do all your students a favor and stop teaching:) thanks xoxo
